Top Tips for Creating a Popular Haunted Room

January 5, 2012 No Comments

“Make your guests feel as if they are submerged into an entirely new world, instead of just amidst actors and a set.  It has to be the complete package.”
– Scot Allan, Gateway’s Haunted Playhouse of Horrors, Bellport, N.Y.

“Be original!  There are many copycat haunts out there.
Do your research and be as original as possible.”
– Kevin McMullen, The Warehouse of Terror, Slidell, La.

“The most popular rooms are the most simple rooms.  Do not confuse your guests with many distractions. Design for the actor, to maximize their ability to scare.”
– Ben Armstrong, Netherworld Haunted House, Norcross, Ga.

“We pioneered the ‘open format,’ where guests are part of the scene, instead of looking at a scene.  They really live the scene and it is very engaging.”
– Amber Arnett-Bequeaith, The Beast, Kansas City, Mo.

“Use professional lighting and misdirection to create a popular room.”
– Michael Jubie, Headless Horseman Hayrides and Haunted Houses, Ulster Park, N.Y.
